Central Florida is a region located between North Florida and South Florida. Historically, much of this area was wetlands until the late 1800s when it was drained and settlements were set up. Today, the area contains some of the state’s major cities, including Orlando and Tampa. So it’s no surprise that it’s a popular spot to visit. People flock to Orlando’s theme parks, John F. Kennedy Space Center, and Central Florida Zoo and Botanical Gardens. While there are plenty of attractions to explore, the area also has natural beauty to enjoy such as plenty of lakes, wetlands, and forests. If you want to stay in a place where you can enjoy natural wonders while experiencing some comforts, check out our list of the top nine glamping spots in Central Florida, Florida.
You can tell this yurt was designed with an artistic eye! From the turquoise railing that surrounds it to the unique artworks found inside, this is certainly a beautiful place to stay. The yurt has a king-sized Murphy bed that provides enough space at night but can be stored vertically against the wall during the day. There’s a full bathroom inside and a kitchenette where you can heat up simple meals. The deck provides a lovely space to sit down and gaze up at the stars with a glass of wine in front of the fire pit. If you like to get to know the farm a bit more, you can say hello to the alpacas, learn how to milk a goat, or go horseback riding.
